Parking By-Law discussion continues

The town is a little closer to a new parking by-law.

During this week’s Committee of the Whole meeting further discussion was given to ways street parking could be improved in Prescott. Councillor Teresa Jansman suggested installing no-parking signs  in the trouble areas near the churches on Dibble Street. Councillor Leanna Burton wanted to be sure the churches were spoken to about the changes. The general consensus amongst the committee was that no-parking signs and painting lines on the road would be the best course of action. Mayor Brett Todd would like to see the no-parking signs go up as quickly as possible.

The committee continued their general discussion about parking in town and Councillor Lee McConnell pointed out how dangerous it can be exiting the Pet Valu parking lot onto King Street. Visibility when pulling into the parking lot is fine but there is a blind spot when merging onto King. It was suggested staff speak with the parking lot’s owner about making the ramp one-way. Staff was asked to come back with a report on the parking lot at a later date.
